Great things to do in New Mexico
New Mexico is a really special place - American Indian and Mexican influence and the wonderful food , culture and architecture are all big draws.
The cities offer anything you would like. Entertainment is top notch and always available. The small towns are full of arts, crafts and gorgeous views.
If the outdoors is your thing, there is plenty to do. Hiking, mountain biking, national monuments, state parks, national forests and local festivals are there to keep you busy. One of the most popular is the hot air balloon festival held each October.
Food is fantastic New Mexico, it has a strong Mexican influence.
New Mexico has a vibrant Native American culture, lots of ghost towns to visit, incredible desert hikes or bike trails, and film and tv trails.
